Unanswerable question on Mastermind

In yesterday's "Mastermind" the competitor who eventually won the contest was asked: What Greek term is used in the gospels as a translation of Golgotha, meaning the place of the skull? She replied "Calvary", which was taken to be correct.

Although the gospels were written in Greek, "Calvary" is Latin not Greek. So the question was unanswerable. If I'd been in the contestant's place I wouldn't have known what to say.
